You might as well read the letters page in the Daily Star as peruse the press release of this new CD on Nomadic Kids Republic to try to gather some information about the latest 'sound sculpturist' to come off the conveyor belt. The problem is, though, that it's increasingly difficult to write about music like this without sounding a) pretentious ("These sounds were layered like lichen on an ancient pantheistic sculpture") or b) rehashing the same old phrases - "drifty", "evocative", "late night listening". This is very much like about 1,000 other releases to have emerged this year, all with improvised themes or detachment inspired by nature, appearing in sleeves with a mysterious out of focus print of a woodland glade. I don't mean to pick on it, as usual with this kind of thing it will either evoke some glorious, wonderful feeling in a half-remembered haze...or it won't. It's basically low-end drifting, like a tumble through a forest in slow motion. Violin scrapes are used to good effect whilst bell like sounds tinkle away. The best tracks sound like a slo-mo rural Murcof with chilling atmospheres creating a mood of disturbed tranquility.
9/10 Jack Xavier Customer review,
what has norman records become, bitchfork? i find it tragic that writers use their talents to slander music rather than help promote it. way to go clinton for helping to boost your employers sales! save your subjective wind and go work for pitchfork already :P
